    Best All-Mountain Flat Pedal

    My Point1 pedal just gave way after less than a year of abuse.

    Any recommendation on the best flat pedal for all mountain ride?

    Thanks!

    straitline defactos are nice. great pins and easy rebuilds. I got a pair of superstar nanos from a friend in the UK and I love 'em. cheap @ 65 usd but work really well. I don't know if they are available to US, though. The thinner stuff definitely feels better to me. Finding I like the cheaper alternatives these days. Maybe the new Saints or the Specialized Flats would be worth looking at.

    I've been using the HT AE-01.... Good traction and light.... only issue is that some of the pins come off easily.

    Twenty6 predators, never slip, light, and i've been racing enduro/super-d all season, and running jump lines at the resort without a hitch. Crazy ass colors, and even custom engraving if you so desire. I've been riding the titanium spindles, weigh 185lbs and they are solid.

    Great product, made in the USA, and Tyler at Twenty6 is hugely responsive, great company.

    I was going to say Point 1, now you have me a bit concerned about mine. I've had them about 6 months now and they have a bit of wear (to be expected). What failed on them might I ask?

    Don't bother reading it, because the consensus is that the Crampon Ultimate is the best

    After bombed down a rocky slope few weeks back, my Nomad started to emit irritating noise each time I pedaled. I thought it was the BB or chainguide, so I took them out to clean and lube. But the same problem kept appearing each time I pedaled. Last week was worse, my crank started to vibrate and the noise got louder each time I pedaled.

    I managed to nail down the fault to Point1 pedal when I realized no noise was produced when the crank was rotated on bike stand. I stripped the pedal into pieces and realized the bearing vibrate coarsely when it was rotated. The rubber band sealant was broken and the washer and bushing have wound out too. Despite cleaning and lub all the parts, the noise and vibration do not go away.

    The lifespan of Point1 pedal is so short! It does not come cheap, this is not what I paid for

    I am now using my spare sunline v1 pedal, it is awesomely grippy, smooth and deadly quite. My only contention is the weight, too heavy for my comfort. The color also does not match my Nomad. I am considering twenty6 and other options.

    Until they start squeaking.

    Why not just rebuild the Point1 with new bearings?

    Correction - the lifespan of your Point1 pedal was short. I have been abusing mine in year round pacific northwest weather for close to two years and have ZERO issues with mine.

    That being said my Canfield crampons are holding up just as well also - both pedals are superb. I believe mine were only 8-10g heavier then my point1s.

    Twenty6 Predators are biggest pedals which I ever seen, light and great handling.
    I like lifetime warranty in Twenty6

    I use the same pedal and love them but the pins do unscrew easily.
    I went to the local Fastenal (any fastener supply house will do) and they matched up the thread (small metric). I bought 50 of each type (allen head and set screw style) in stainless for around $10 total.Now replacing them is no big deal.
    Another hint is when you replace them, use some sort of light locktight (use blue, NOT RED). I actually use Rock-n-Roll's Nipple Creme;
    Rock"N"Roll Lubrication - Products - Bicycle Lube - Nipple Cream
    It's a cheaper version of Spoke Prep. It has just enough hold to keep them from backing out on their own but still easy to remove.

    Looks like the same failure as mine.
